That's good to know.

That said, lots of people include more than three images in some of their posts. I have done it myself. However, if you want individual critiques of your images, you probably don't want to overload your critiquers. At least you can label or number your images so they can easily be referred to.

I felt that posting a dozen individual posts of my Bodie pictures would be a waste of space and also would keep the entirety of the images from being viewed due to the volume alone. The motivation for displaying all in one post was less about being critiqued and more IWO having them easily view as a whole.

However any thoughts on how I could improve my work is always welcome.

Well you did divide them into two separate posts.
I have posted photos in separate threads but that's not an ideal solution either.
Perhaps the way to go with large numbers of photographs would be thumbnails rather than big images but I don't think that option is available here.
It's probably just me, scrolling through a rake of photos I've forgotten the first one by the time I'm at the last one.

The problem with thumbnails is you have to click each one to enlarge it.

True, but you do get a manageable overview of the series, and clicking on something is hardly heavy labour.
I suppose it depends on the size of the thumbnails, but as it's not available it's a moot point anyway.

I enjoy all the shots... for me #1 is a bit tight on the wheel... but the overall portfolio is very good

I agree, I didn't want to include the parking lot!
